  • Description

    Our Kurason Ysengsong Community Garden was first created on February 22, 2014. Today we have 34 plots of varying sizes. Through this project we plan to install another 10 plots, 10 wheelchair accessible Tire Grow Bags. 

    Students will be working alongside adults from Island Girl Power and possibly other organizations. 

    This project is partially sponsored by The United EcoSkies Grant and THE NCD Non-Communicable Disease Consortium.
